So in honor of President’s Day weekend, we cooked a weekend full of chicken dinners. It wasn’t meant to happen, but it ended up being that way and we were interested to see if we would be completely burned out on chicken by Monday (which we were….we ordered Steak Out…ha!). So here are our weekend recipes.

First up, Friday. Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Florentine Pasta.

Chicken FlorentineThis recipe is everything she claims it be. Quick, easy, and sooo good! I am adding it to our staples.

Next, Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Enchiladas:

Chicken EnchiladasI made the enchiladas in advance (except for the sauce) and with flour tortillas instead of corn. I have gotten really frustrated with corn tortillas breaking lately…most likely user error. I then made the sauce right before dinner, topped the enchiladas with the sauce and baked them off in the oven. They were obviously good since I ate the leftovers…cue my fancy paper plates.

And on Sunday…smoked chicken thighs and roasted vegetables.

Then I roasted them at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.  Smoked Chicken ThighsAnd my husband smoked chicken thighs in his fancy smoker that is now upgraded with some special smoking grates thanks to my Dad’s handy tools.
